    Someone sent an email around with old ads from the 40s, 50s and 60s that were incredibly cringeworth.

    I thought this one took the cake - why your kids should start drinking Coke from an early age. Read the caption.

    LOL that reminds me of when I had a job in college working in a medical records department at a mental health facility. One of my jobs was to take records to doctors so that they could sign them. There was one doctor that smoked so much in his office you could barely see him sitting at his desk.

    More ads!! I'm very entertained!!! :)

    Wasn't it Southwest that took a woman off their flight because her skirt was too short? :lol:
    Real or not, I was told about a woman who brought her 8 months old baby to her doctor's appointment. The baby had a bottle with dark liquid in it. When questioned as to what the baby was drinking, she said Coke and that the baby loved it so much. :(

    My mom was a public health educator in South Carolina and specialized in dental health. She did a lot of the free screenings and classes in public schools. She said the prevalance of rotten teeth in that area was astronomical becuase people put coke in baby bottles all the time. And kept them on bottles for hours and hours a day (easiest way to keep them quiet) and long past when they should've been weaned. I'd always noticed that the people in that region had a very distinctive mouth shape, which she attributed to traditional "bottle mouth" plus loss of teeth. It was pretty revolting.
